Middle Georgia Plaza
140 W. Dykes St. Cochran, GA
Cochran, GA is a rural community just south of Macon, GA. This site was formerly a Harvey’s grocery box. Following the Harvey’s bankruptcy, this center fell into decline, ultimately leading to an almost completely vacant center. The center was purchased with Pizza Hut being the only remaining tenant. However, the Harvey’s space still had all equipment, freezers, shelving, and fixtures remaining with the space. A deal was worked with the regional grocery chain, Food Depot, who has over fifty locations. Ownership worked quite an aggressive deal, giving them use of all of the existing grocery equipment and fixtures, along with FIVE YEARS OF FREE RENT. By solidifying a grocery anchor, this center was able to reach 100% occupancy, with the new tenants including a gym and music academy.
